It’s well known that eating fruit is healthy, but which are the specific fruit that you should eat and why?
In this article, I’ll share 5 healthy fruits that I love to eat and that you should too:
The first of these healthy top fruits is one of my favorites: the Apple. Not only do I love the taste of a good apple, whether it is of the red or green variety, I know that I’m giving my body a dose of goodness.
Among the many benefits of apples, let me just state a few: apples contain a variety of vitamins (A, B, D) and minerals such as potassium and calcium. They are also rich in antioxidants which helps protect your body against the effects of free radicals and a lot of dietary fiber which is excellent for digestion.
This is one of the sweetest and tastiest fruits there are. The only problem is that it is a bit of an exotic fruit so it may be more expensive than other fruit. I love pineapples and I think that they rival any desert. Why eat cakes or candy when you can enjoy a succulent pineapple?
Pineapples are not just the perfect alternatives to fattening deserts. They also carry plenty of benefits in their own right. Pinapples contain manganese which helps you build and maintain strong bones. It is rich in vitamin C which improves your body’s immune system, and Bromelain which aids digestion, among other benefits.
I love eating oranges more than I like drinking orange juice. I can “feel” the fruit better when I’m sinking my teeth into it. However, oranges are about more than just their taste and juice. They are also very healthy. It is worth noting that turning oranges into fruit may rob them of some of their nutritional value.
Oranges contain Herperidin, a substance that may lower blood pressure and cholesterol. They also contain a high dose of vitamin C which is vital for the immune system and helps to protect your body cells against free radicals. Some studies show that Vitamin C from oranges is even more beneficial than using supplements.
Oranges, among other citrus fruits, may help protect you against various types of cancer and a variety of cardiovascular diseases. They also provide a lot of fiber which helps to keep you full, aids digestion, and keep your blood sugar level under control.
This tropical fruit is like a forbidden pleasure. It is almost too tasty to be good. But, like a lot of other fruits, Papayas are also healthy for you.
Papayas contain vitamins A, C, and E which may reduce the risk of various heart conditions. The Vitamin C content may protect against colds and influenza. This fruit may even help to reduce the risk of colon cancer and prostate cancer. The element Papain is helpful to ward off allergies and treat a variety of injuries. Eating Papayas may also reduce the risk of Macular Degeneration, a condition that affects eyesight and becomes more common with age.
Raisins are dried up grapes that can be added to a variety of dishes: salads, yogurt, fruit salad, oatmeal, cereals, and eaten as a dried fruit by themselves. Very tasty and crunch, this fruit also provides a variety of health benefits.
For instance, raisins contain the element Boron which is vital for the health of our bones and may reduce risk of osteoporosis. Raisins are one of the best and richest sources of Boron. Raisins also help to reduce the risk of macular degeneration (similar to other fruits). This fruit also contains phenols which are powerful antioxidants that help to protect your body on a cellular level against the effects of free radicals and may also reduce inflammation within your body.
